HANDLES, KEYS


 

Handle, Key No. 1...

The Handle, Key No. 1 is the standard handle for a single lever key and is produced in two patterns.  The handle screws onto a No.2 BA thread.

Knurled pattern
The knurled pattern which is turned from formalised Casein, or in the case of black handles from Ebonite. While perfectly satisfactory in the great majority of cases, the use of Casein handles is not recommended in potentially damp situations such as unheated U.A.X. buildings, as, very
rarely, a fungus growth may then develop.

Fluted pattern
The fluted pattern which is moulded in either a thermo-setting material (a phenolic or urea formaldehyde) or a thermo-plastic material, usually polystyrene.

Colours:-
Grey, green, black, yellow, blue and red.

Handle, Key No. 11

Spring loaded locking lever for standard lever keys.

This handle permits the key to be locked in the normal position or in either of the operated positions.  It consists of two parts: a gate which is fixed to the key-mounting by the key-fixing screws and a spring-loaded handle which is screwed to the cam in place of the standard handle.  In use the handle is lifted against its spring and dropped into the appropriate notch in the gate, and the handle cannot then be removed again without first re-lifting it against its spring.  This handle can of Course be used on a single-action key if required, but Handle, Key, No. 16 is adequate in such a case.
